4.0 out of 5 stars Watch the Red Bugs, 14 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hoard (Kindle Edition)
There's a potential Hoarder in all you avid book readers out there, so this story was certainly an intriguing concept with a horrific parasitic twist.
Anna Grish is an old lady and a hoarder, she collects and stores everything to the extent that it's a big chore just moving around her house, which has also disgustingly been all but taken over by feral cats (not a cat lover myself so this part repulsed me).

Her Son Pete, who lives close by with his family, regularly brings food over for Anna but she never lets him in the house, always coming outside to collect and give back the tupperware. Ashamed she maybe, a little bit crazy definitely and there's a little red parasite that's going to bring a mountain of trouble to Anna and all around her.
One day Anna is found buried under a heap of her stash, taken to hospital, social services are soon involved and the house built by her late husband is condemned, but all is not right with dear old Anna. For starters she makes an alarmingly quick recovery, her dead son talks to her and she is drawn back to her wreck of a house. She is slowly being consumed by the parasitic infection and her needs become that of an animal or a bug, to increase the size of her nest, infect more people and spread rapidly.

The Hoard is an enjoyable parasite horror, I was invested in the characters and a little surprised by the ending, leaving it somewhat open for a follow on.
